Michael “Skeeter” Pilarski, Friends of the Trees Society, has published a Directory of herb stores in the Pacific Northwest for over 20 years. Following is the list of the 47 herb stores we are currently aware of. This edition is sponsored by Friends of the Trees Botanicals, a family-owned herb and wild-crafting operation, located in Port Hadlock, Washington, on the Olympic Peninsula.

The number of stores keeps growing. There were 24 in the 2011 edition and Michael can remember when there were fewer than 10. Our definition of an herb store is that it has a primary focus on herbal medicine, sells bulk herbs (generally rows of gallon jars), and has knowledgeable herbalists on staff. We have not included Chinese herb stores, but would like to include them in a future edition along with other Asian herb stores, Ayurvedic, Hispanic, and other cultural herb stores. This list does not include supplement stores and the many natural food stores, which also sell herbal products, like food coops, the PCC, Whole Foods, New Seasons, etc. For the herb stores listed here, we have, for the most part, included the name, address, phone number, email, website, owner’s name, year founded, and a brief description of what the store offers and what sets it apart, what would make you want to visit it. Some stores do not have websites, some have Facebook pages, some don’t give out their email address, but do have an option on their website to “contact” them. All offer beautiful herbs for your health and well-being.

The list mostly runs alphabetically by state, and town/city, with Washington State and Turtle Island/the US listed first.
